Plans committee chairman Hugo Barton said: "Where we have planning applications that are clearly controversial, with the potential for a significant impact on the community, I think it's only right that the plans committee go to that community. Apart from our determining it in situ, this also allows more people to attend, hear the presentations, make contributions, as appropriate, and listen to the deliberations. Councils need to be as inclusive and responsive as possible and this is one way of achieving that."
